Gawler Ranges National Park
This underrated 1200-square-kilometre park in the Eyre Peninsula’s northern section has dramatic gorges and cliffs, volcanic hills, abundant wildlife and wildflowers. It is one of the best spots to see southern hairy-nosed wombats, yellow-footed rock-wallabies and beautiful Major Mitchell cockatoos and scarletbreasted parrots. Most tracks are unsuitable for 2WD vehicles. Recommended bush camping sites (minimum facilities) include Yandinga, Kolay Hut and Mattera, but you will need to take your own water.
